Limestone Legacy Shawl
Indiana’s limestone is of the highest quality and can be seen on the exterior of many famous buildings across the country, such as the Empire State Building, the Pentagon, Yankee Stadium, and the Biltmore Estate, among others. The Limestone Legacy shawl is inspired by the subtle and consistent texture of this iconic stone.
